Around a year ago, Duratrax teased the RC community with the release of an 1/8 scale monster truck referred to as the Warhead. It took longer than Duratrax anticipated but the release of the truck is finally here, and it certainly looks ready to tackle any off-road terrain that gets in its way. The twin vertical chassis setup is well known for its durability, but often offers issues in regards to maintenance. With this in mind, Duratrax set out to change this common complaint associated with this chassis style.
I’ll admit I’ve wanted to check out this truck since it was first mentioned, and can’t wait to get started. First though, I’ll need to tear through the various components to give you, the reader, a good idea of what Duratrax equipped this truck with. Once that’s complete, it’ll be time to hit the dirt and see how well it performs. So let’s get started, and see how big of a blast the Warhead creates!
